polls are so interesting because the most recent poll that we have the cnn/orc poll, shows obama with a little bit of a lead over romney. >> most of the polls in ohio show consistently the president between two and four points. ohio is interesting. the unemployment there below the rest of the country. so the economic argument in ohio hasn't been about good economy/bad economy. they kind of microtargeted which is why the romney campaign focused on the issue of coal for instance. hitting the issue of coal hard. >> and the microtargeting is so interesting because every state is different. it has a different economic fingerprint, if you will. if you look at florida, where housing is a very big deal in florida. in florida it's been kind of a pretty stubborn unemployment rate. i think it's still stuck near where it was before. 8.7% today. that's exactly where it was when the president took office. it's come down from the peaks, but still basically where the president took office. and then in virginia you've got an unemployment rate that is also essentially gone up and come back down an

, john. >>> president obama heading to new jersey today. brand new polls that john was just mentioning from "the new york times"/cbs quinnipiac polling, virtually tied in florida. look at virginia and in ohio, the president is holding a five-point lead on romney. jen psaki joins us. nice to talk to you. >> good morning, soledad. >> a lot of focus has been taken off the campaign trail as the president focuses on the devastation of superstorm sandy and governor romney, as well, not really campaigning. sort of dealing with the storm aftermath. are you worried when you see some of the those poll numbers, where you see virginia and florida neck and neck? >> the president is out there, doing exactly what the american people elected him to do, which is to manage the country in a state of crisis. for this week, that's hurricane sandy. you've seen him over the past couple of days hunker down in the white house, making calls to mayors and governors, getting briefed by his team. he will be touring the damage with governor christie today. this is a time where politics takes a backseat. on the poll

a wall street journal nbc ma marist poll i should mention. ohio, 50% obama, 45% rrm. virginia, 49% obama, 47% rrm. that is from the cbs quinnipiac poll. let's start with you on this, congressman. the good news is that the president's lead is shrinking. we've seen it go down dramatically in those battleground states. the bad news, though, is that he is ahead. even if it's a squeaker. >> i think there are a couple of things to think about on this. number one, volunteers who are knocking on doors of those who have not voted yet come back with a very different message than what you're getting in the polls. for the president, the fact that there are still undecideds and the independents seem to be breaking toward mitt romney, that is not good news for him. it shows the momentum is definitely with mitt romney. people want change. they want action on day one. and they've been presented a very clear choice between the president and mitt romney. >> do you have any concern that in a state like yours and states further south they'll go for romney by these overwhelming margin margins, are you
